Woburn Sands this Sunday?
It was all dry and sandy last time – and one trail was impassable due to excessively verdant spiky plants, so winter should have some upsides. I’ll be there late morning if anyone wants to join me, as I think I’ll be too late for any of the group rides. Does anyone have an up-to-date map? I missed the freeride section last time – are there any jumps small enough for an airtime novice?Posted 7 years agoThe FopsterMember
As a newcomer to Woburn (just moved to the area) I find it almost impossible to find my way around, and am lost most of the time. Doesn’t help that I am normally there in the dark. If you have any form of GPS type thingy (I use phone) I’d suggest just ride around and follow your nose on whatever looks like a nice trail, then half an hour before home time get the phone out and try and figure out how the hell you get back to where you started. And on no account do that late at night with fading lights and with your spare batteries on your kitchen worktop. Hypothetically.Posted 7 years agoTrimixMember
Its a small area on a hill surrounded by a road or the limit of the woods. Covered in trails every which way, so if you get lost you will not be lost for long. Either ride uphill or down hill, how hard can it be.
Pick a bit of it and ride all the trails in it, soon it will make sence. Plus getting lost for a while means you will ride stuff you have not done before.
After a few vists you will get some idea of the place, after several visits you will realise there are endless trails. I must have been ten times and still find loads to ride Id not done before.
Take a couple of quid as you may ride into the warden who will want you to buy a day pass.Posted 7 years ago
